DYI reduced fat peanut butter...my latest harebrained scheme

danna | Sep 26, 2008 09:38 AM

I love peanut butter, even more so since I switched to all natural (less sugar, more peanut flavor) and EVEN more so since I found the Santa Cruz dark roast crunchy at Whole foods. But...it's making me fat. As I was stirring in the separated oil on top of my newly opened jar last week the thought occured...why not just pour if off? The resulting product would be sludgey and hard to spread...but still taste mostly the same...right? And it would be lower fat...how much lower, i wonder?

has anyone done this? where is the flaw in this plan? My main uses for pb are pbj sandwiches, making asian dipping sauces or soba noodle sauces, and eating out of the jar w/ my finger, along with a few chocolate chips. (god help me)
